Wednesday I visited with Chris Swain, director of the University of Southern California’s Electronic Arts Game Innovation Lab. Swain is the creator of the cutting-edge Redistricting Game, which lets users play mapmaker in order to understand the good, the bad and the ugly of allowing elected officials draw the borders of areas which they or their fellow party members represent.

Tennessee Congressmen John Tanner (D-8th) and Zach Wamp (R-3rd) are both pushing the Fairness and Independence in Redistricting Act, which is now in committee.

Stay tuned for updates.
